How WHYPAY? is Different
WHYPAY? is not the same as other conference call providers. Our 03 dial-in number is included in your bundled minutes under Ofcom regulations.
033 3443 3443
What's more, we don't charge you for access to any extra features!
Check with your phone provider to find out your bundled minutes allowance. Calls outside your bundled minutes are charged at your standard rate to 01/02/03 numbers.
Genuinely Free Conference Calls
Calls to our 03 dial-in number MUST count towards any inclusive minutes offered by your fixed or mobile network operator. This is an Ofcom regulation. If you have bundled minutes available at the time you dial into a WHYPAY? conference call, your call is included within those minutes. If you don't have bundled or unlimited minutes, or go over your allowance your call is charged at the standard rate (the same rate you get charged for calling 01 and 02 numbers).
These rules apply to calls from any type of line including mobile, BT, other fixed line operators and payphones. Other "free" conference services (free in the sense that they don't also charge to host the conference call) are operated on special rate 0844 and 0871 numbers. These are generally excluded from bundled minutes and often charged at a much higher rate.
Sounds too good to be true?
Our conference calling service can sound too good to be true, but our free conference call service is supported by the fraction of a penny per minute which we earn from BT wholesale payments from calls made to 03 numbers. This provides a wafer-thin margin allowing us to provide WHYPAY? at no cost to you. We do not charge to use the service or any of its extra features; nor do we insist you provide an email address to obtain a conference room.

Estimated total cost for EE customer calling an 084 number (commonly provided): 50.64p per minute.

**Many providers allocate bundled minutes as part of mobile and landline phone contracts. calls to WHYPAY? are by law included in these bundled minutes. Please check your providers information on bundled minutes. Some providers cap bundled minutes once you reach a specific call duration (usually 1 hour).
